Resveratrol, a polyphenol in red wine, one of the ingredients in Glamour Nutrition’s
ANTI-AGE has been reported as having anti aging and properties.
It is widely consumed as a nutritional supplement, and its mechanism of action has been researched by many scientific studies.
Some recent data provide interesting insights into the effect of this compound on the lifespan, implicating the potential of resveratrol as an anti-aging agent and a strong anti-inflammatory product.
While a healthy diet and lifestyle is strongly recommended in prevention of such conditions, many recent studies recommend the use of resveratrol in the prevention and treatment of diseases that afflict humans, particularly as they age.
Resveratrol also shares a lot of other beneficial effects, such as reducing the occurrence of osteoporosis, beneficially influencing fat cell production (in favor of long-term fat loss) and modulating blood pressure; usually a reduction of blood pressure.
According to a 2012 Canadian study, resveratrol supplementation could provide similar skeletal muscle benefits as endurance training. The study, conducted over a 12-week period on rats, found that resveratrol supplementation also resulted in an increase of endurance, oxidative metabolism, and enhanced cardiac function. Better yet, the combination of endurance training with resveratrol supplementation resulted in a performance increase of 21%.
